Hy­dra­tion clinic helps ease hang­overs

Modern Healthcare - - OUTLIERS ASIDES & INSIDES -

Out­liers as­sumes your New Year’s hang­overs are long gone by now. But if you live near Chicago and ever need a quick fix for any other morn­ing-af­ter mal­adies, a new hy­dra­tion clinic could of­fer some re­lief.

Dr. Jack Dybis, a trauma and gen­eral sur­geon at Evanston (Ill.) Hospi­tal, has opened Chicago’s first hy­dra­tion clinic, Re­vive.

For $99, the med­i­cal staff will sooth your nau­sea, headache and cot­ton­mouth with in­tra­venous flu­ids, vi­ta­mins and med­i­ca­tions as needed.

“Paramedics and res­i­dents have been do­ing this for decades for colds and flu,” Dybis told Crain’s Chicago Busi­ness, not­ing the clinic treats those mal­adies and jet­lag at Re­vive, too. “You start feel­ing bet­ter right away.” Treat­ments last about an hour.

Has he used it him­self? “Yes, but not for a hang­over,” he says. “I’m hooked up right now be­cause I’m get­ting some B-com­plex for a cold.”
